Re: Cyber Knight Armour

IIRC Combat Cyborgs are Size +1, so wouldn't fit in any of the listed power armor. They can get it customized for a significant cost increase (double purchase and repairs). Unless noted otherwise, Toughness bonuses do stack. Pretty sure the 'borg's Toughness was added into the middle of the M.D.C. ...

And I can't complain about others being pedantic. :wink:
While TW is a variant of Arcane Background (Weird Science), the game mechanics are different enough that it at least needs an asterisk.

Yep. In fact, all the casters (except Techno-Wizard) use the core ABs.
They get a bunch of extra stuff to go with it, but a M.A.R.S. caster can be just as effective and competitive as a Ley Line Walker, Techno-Wizard, or Mind Melter.

Re: [SR] Genetic Engineer

@SteelDraco I am attempting something a bit more mundane (if larger scale), but that is a really cool thought. You've given me a real thing to consider regarding the Sidekick edge. The core Arcane Background (Weird Science) could also work, as well or even better for either the character or a Sidek...

Re: [SR] Healer: Scholar vs. Cyber-Doc

Re: Born a Hero and Powers

The core Born a Hero setting rule (at creation, a character can ignore rank qualification for edges) doesn't allow characters to take powers above novice at creation. Is there a good reason for this? Are Seasoned/Veteran powers too powerful for a novice level character? The reason is that you're re...

Re: [SR] Genetic Engineer

I'm going to buck the trend and point you at Knowledge (Medicine) and Knowledge (Science) without taking the Healing skill. This would easily represent a deep understanding of medical, biological, and genetic science (thanks free Scholar edge) without being a trained or qualified care provider. 8) S...

Re: [SPC2] Super speed and fleet-footed.

You're welcome. :) A handy guideline - everything that has its own Wild Die is a separate action. Frenzy? One wild die, so both fighting dice are one action (that must be done at the same time). Two weapon fighting? One wild die for each hand, so each hand is a separate action. Running is one of tho...

One thing: Quick doesn't really help you avoid a club for Monologuer. It should just as often take you from a low non-club to a redrawn club as the other way around (you have to take the redraw, even if it is worse for you, as I understand). Sure, you have to draw, but the player chooses which card...
